Award-winning powerhouse creative team consisting of theater and film Artistic Director / Choreographer Maria Torres (Swing, Dance With Me, Enchanted), Creative Producer/Visual Designer Jenni Ogden (Disney, Universal, Paramount) and Creative Director/ Visual Designer Jeffrey Klein (Universal, Disney, Warner Bros.) announce their collective residency with The c3: Center for Conscious Creativity and Vortex Immersive Media in Los Angeles, where they will be developing their latest collaboration—Pasión, a new and original theatrical show set to premiere in 2015.
Pasión is an innovative celebration of Latin culture told through music, dance and 360-degrees of immersive visuals designed to be presented in a fulldome theater. The production integrates Caribbean cultural elements, including original music and show-stopping choreography, a moving stage with visuals, 360º 3D animation and special effects.
Presented in two acts, Pasión takes the audience on a journey of discovery starting with Afro-Latino style drumming and culture from the islands, to a closing celebration complete with dancing, scents, traditional food and specialty drinks. “Pasión is more than a show. It is a theatrical celebration of the fusion of two worlds—Spain and Africa—in creating the music, dance and life of the Caribbean. It’s a visceral experience stimulating our audience’s senses as they are taken on a journey back in time to the roots of our Latin culture,” said director Maria Torres.
